We've still got some snow around. Temps today are supposed to get above freezing but I've not seen that yet. There's still plenty of snow on my deck, as you can see.
It's very thick and crusty. In this picture I'm standing on top of around 5" of accumulated snow, next to the watering can on my deck. The crust is so thick that it can support my 210 plus pounds.
As you can see in the next picture, as I get closer to the deck railing, where the snow drifted a bit and is deeper---I break through.
